Rainbow Candy Apples

Make candy apples that actually look like real candy with these fully customizable sweet treats.

Ingredients

  • 4 ½ cups granulated sugar
  • 1 ½ cups water
  • ¾ cups corn syrup
  • 3 tbsp white food colouring
  • rainbow food colouring
  • 12 granny smith apples
  • lollipop sticks or skewers
  • cooking spray

Steps

  1. You will be making 2 colors per batch, so just repeat these steps 3 times.
  2. Place 1 ½ cups granulated sugar, ½ cup water and ¼ cup corn syrup into a medium-sized pot and stir to combine.
  3. Add 1 tbsp white food coloring and several drops pink food coloring and mix well.
  4. Set to medium-high heat and attach a candy thermometer. Heat to 302F.
  5. In the meantime, wash the apples, remove the stems and insert lollipop sticks or skewers into the top. Spray a baking sheet with cooking spray and set aside.
  6. Once the candy reaches 302F, dip 2 apples into the pink candy, then place on the baking sheet.
  7. Add some orange food coloring to the candy, mix well, then coat 2 apples in orange candy.
  8. To easily clean the pot between batches, pour out any excess candy into a silicone mold, then fill the pot with water. Bring to a boil and boil until the excess candy coating melts. Pour out the hot water, then repeat Steps 2-6, making yellow and green in one batch and blue and purple in the last batch.
